Rapper, singer, songwriter and American Idol judge Nicki Minaj launched her fragrance Pink Friday at an event at Macy’s in Queens, New York City.

Back in Nicki Minaj’s hometown, the megastar launched her new fragrance, Pink Friday at a glitzy and certainly very pink event in Queens on November 20th.

“Pink Friday is a celebration of my life at this moment; it is a reflection of me as a creator, and an expression of me as a woman” says Nicki. 

Available at Macy’s in the US, the fragrance is distributed by Elizabeth Arden, and will appear in stores in Europe in March 2013. The fruity concoction also features florals, warm vanilla, musks and woods. The 3.4 oz bottle, forming a golden and pink bust of the star retails at $59.00.

The official video for the scent begins with Minaj lying on a bed of black roses. She pricks her finger on a thorn, releasing rose-colored blood, which fills the shot with magical color as Nicki’s skin turns golden, and her eyes glow pink.   

The star has also announced she will be launching her own record label. Her first artist is London-based singer-songwriter Parker Ighile who also features on Minaj’s latest album The Re-Up released on November 19.

This Friday, singer Rihanna is also set to lauch a new fragrance, with the upcoming ‘Nude’ following her Reb’l Fleur (launched in 2011) and Rebelle scents. – AFP RELAX NEWS
